I have a floating livestock trough heater in my water feature. Don’t know how big yours is Jerry, but this morning, after a 10 degree night, my water was free of ice.

Since this cold spell started I have continued to keep my water feature flowing and the birds have flocked to it like water in a desert. The supply side line finally froze. Unfortunately, it was on the same electric box line as my two heated bird baths. This morning I had to go out and unplug the pump in order to turn on the heated baths. It will take a while for the Ice to melt but they will soon hopefully find them and have their much needed water. I hope all of you remember that putting out water on these freezing days is as important as seed and suet.
